Exact survey points, surface locations, lots, mining claims, streets, blocks, etc. are indicated, along with dimensions, county real estate books, directions, building locations, depots, spurs to various mines, reservoirs, and other topographical details. Maps begin in Florence, Colorado and extend up Phantom Canyon to Victor, in the Cripple Creek Gold Mining District, through towns such as Arequa and Anaconda, past gold mines and into the City of Cripple Creek. Condition of book: near fine; no evident flaws or weaknesses. This book is a definitive reference on the construction of the FLORENCE AND CRIPPLE CREEK and GOLDEN CIRCLE RAILROADS.
